Viking Rurik

Founder of Kyivan Rus and the Rurik Dynasty

In the 9th century, the Varangian prince Rurik established the birth of the Rurik Dynasty which ruled Kyivan Rus, the precursor to Russia. The name “Rus” comes from Ruotsi, the Finnish word for the Swedes, and means “the men who row.” There is a 9th-century funerary barrow in Novgorod Oblast that locals call Rurik’s grave.

Our intimate, all-veranda ships offer a wide variety of staterooms for your selection.

And whichever stateroom you choose, you will find it beautifully designed in the understated elegance for which Viking is known.

Decks
Dining

It’s been said that the best way to know a culture is through its food and wine. Both engage your senses and provide a window into the traditions and essence of a land. Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. The ships’ dining areas are hospitable and inviting; the service is friendly, attentive and personalised. Menu selections include regional dishes and contemporary cuisine to offer a variety of flavours designed to suit any palate.You have choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not just in food selection, but also in where and how you enjoy them. Greet the morning with a croissant and cappuccino on deck, or begin your day with a sumptuous buffet breakfast. Have a casual lunch or dinner al fresco, or join friends in the restaurant. Open seating allows you to mingle with the same guests every evening or meet someone new each day.

Entertainment

As with your stateroom, the public areas are designed to make the most of the splendid views. Whether from the sun deck, the Panorama Lounge or the restaurant, a river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing, from the time the morning mist rises from the water to when the setting sun announces the end to another remarkable day.
